Sometimes the best advice is, "no, don't do it!"


We regularly survey our clients and ask for their feedback. Fear of making the wrong decision and buying the wrong property is a common theme. When we asked our clients for the main reason they decided to use JLL as their Buyers Advocate, they answered “To avoid buying the wrong property”. Our clients felt that we were able to ensure that they didn’t make a mistake; particularly when they sourced their own opportunities and brought them to us for our review.

Leah, one of our clients, describes her experience and how hearing the words “No. Don’t do it!” was the best possible advice she received.

“Through my three acquisitions with JLL, the one thing that stands out the most, is my most recent purchase.

My Buyers Advocate Josh, did not feel that we were going to achieve the value for money in the search area that we were looking for, so he advised me that he would expand the search area and explained his reasoning behind it. He continued to search and constantly kept me updated. We had two close purchases, however through Josh’s honest and caring advice, he advised me to walk away from these properties due to the overpriced heated market. Then through his contacts, he presented me an off market property where we quickly formed a solid strategy.

Josh dealt with my solicitor, the vendors and the vendor’s solicitors professionally throughout the entire process, constantly keeping me updated with every bit of information. He constantly delivered on his service promise above and beyond!”

We have a long term view of property investing and the difference between a good investment and a bad investment can be tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, or even millions. We are in the market all the time, and are in constant contact with our global team and network of agent colleagues. With our first class valuers and the best strategic and market research team in the country, we know the difference!

Often the glossy, sumptuous marketing and fanfare that accompanies brand new projects can divert the investors’ attention from solid real estate fundamentals. At JLL Buyers Advocacy, we can see through the brochures and websites and can help you navigate through these often confusing waters. Similarly, with established property, we can uncover potential issues that could negatively impact the performance of your acquisition.

Whether you are an investor or an owner/occupier, looking for a home or business premises, we can help you make the right, informed decision.
